All over the world, most energy models of the human body have their roots in shamanism and shamanic practice. This includes the chakra system (often thought to be Indian, but found all over the world), the Chinese understanding of yin and yang and the five elements, the understanding of kundalini and prana in Indian philosophy and medicine, Tibetian medicine, and more. All owe their origins to shamanism, and the ancient knowledge of shamanism is what underpins them .
On this course we will focus on the human energy body, working shamanically with the energy flows, the chakra system (the energy centres in the body) and the five elements of ether, air, water and earth. We will explore shamanic meditation practices to cultivate and balance energy and power. As well as journeying into each of our chakras, we will also journey into each of the elements, explore our relationship with them, and find our elemental helper for each element. In doing so, we will gradually build our own inner totem pole.
The course is over nine weekends. Starting at the base chakras, we will use meditation practices and journeying to explore, heal and balance our relationship with the earth element, and find our base/earth chakra animal, and so lay the foundation stone of our personal totem pole. Each subsequent weekend will be spent building our totem pole upwards, chakra by chakra, until our totem pole is complete. We will explore the mental, emotional and spiritual issues of the chakra we are working with on each weekend. Through a mixture of theory, shamanic journeying, meditation and other exercises, we will also experience and explore the different energy flows that come from each chakra and form the energy body, and how these create and govern the various physical organs and systems in the body. This will give participants a detailed understanding of the energetic factors behind diseases, and how the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical all tie together.
